Hi,there! Many people say that soup is good for our skin.It makes our skin healthier and look more beautiful. Do you think so? When do you have soup usually? Is that before a meal or after a meal? When do you think is the best time? Why? I'd like to hear your ideas about that:) Thanks in advance^_^

I love soup... but i did not know that it is good for the skin... thank you for that information... well, since i really love soup... i take it before and after each meal... and sometimes... it is the meal in itself... I make my own soup from the leftover vegetables inside the fridge and it is the very first thing that i would order when eating in a restaurant...

How is soup good for our skin? Maybe the water. Water is good for our skin. When I make a pot of homemade soup I put so much stuff in it, it is a meal in itself. So I wouldn't be eating it after or before I ate my meal. I didn't know people did anymore. I know when we were kids my mom would make a pot of chicken soup and nothing really in it except noodles. We always had a little bowl of it before we ate our meal. I wonder why today we don't do that anymore. You have just reminded me of something from my past. Neat.

I think soup is good for you. It adds liquid to your body. I don't know though if it makes you look more beautiful. I usually have and serve soup for lunch followed by a sandwich or salad. Sometimes I seve a clear soup before dinner when guests are invited. I have been told that in East-European countries soup is always served before dinner. When I eat in restaurants there is often a choice between soup or salad with your dinner. I usually pick the salad unless the soup sounds really exciting.
